Cameron's crusade for gay marriage and the future
This report tells us that Mr. Cameron will push through the state redefinition of marriage in spite of all the criticisms and warning bells. The loudest warning bell (to which he is dangerously deaf) is that the "institution" of gay marriage will not be the end of the matter. We all know what will happen because there are militant gay people in our society who are opposed to any Christian denomination (and any religion) maintaining a traditional view of sexual relations. Do you think that these militant gays are going to be satisfied with being able to "marry" in a register office or even in a church where the vicar is sympathetic? After a short while they will look disapprovingly at the church across the way which will not conform to their view, and they will protest and continue protesting until they get their way and eventually the government (or the opposition, to win votes) promises to deal with this by invoking a new regulation demanding that all churches where marriages take place be available to gay couples. You know it, and I know it, and if David Cameron (with respect) has any common sense, he also knows it. Batten down the hatches friends, to paraphrase a famous Bette Davis line, "it's going to be a bumpy ride!"
